escape:

your
world
is waiting

create:

and dwell
among
them

live:

tangled
in
a fantasy

wonder:

which
life
you are
living

eat,
breathe
and sleep

words

Hay-on-Wye

Old Typewriter With Books Retro Colors On The Desk

She backed out of the front door of her apartment with her puffy purple suitcase in tow and saw him for the first time in months.

“Where are you headed?” he asked.

“To Hay-on-Wye in Wales for a couple months. I want to be inspired by all of the books,” she replied.

Completely Captivated

heart of the book's pagesOn the bus in the morning
‘tis such a good part
dear book, quite great
through the traffic we dart

The characters within
possess such flare
part of your world now
cannot help but stare

Completely captivated
will not put you down
next time I look out
my, another town!

I Love Libraries

Stack of Library Books

I know some people think it’s cool to say things like “what are books?” these days, but I will always love libraries.  They have been a gathering place for the community for years.

I used to pick up my tax forms there (before tax filing switched to online).  I took field trips to the library during summer camp when I was kid.  How exciting it was to pile a stack of books on the counter and know they were mine, for free, for three weeks.

And librarians are always so nice.  Always willing to help you find what you need.  I went to the library last night to check out a couple of audio books and discovered a used book sale.  Bronte, Faulkner and Poe for $1.00 – you can’t go wrong.  When I checked out, the librarian said, “Enjoy your books!

I find it peaceful and relaxing to be in a library.  Maybe it’s the nostalgia that brings me comfort.  In this fast-paced, technology-reliant society we live in, it is nice to know that there is a place I can go that takes me back in time, yet also moves me forward.
